Dressage
Dressage is a French term, most commonly translated to mean "training" is a competitive equestrian sport, defined by the International Equestrian Federation as "the highest expression of horse training", where "equine and rider are expected to perform from memory a series of predetermined movements. Competitions are held at all levels from amateur to the World Equestrian Games. Its fundamental purpose is to develop, through standardized progressive training methods, a equines natural athletic ability and willingness to perform, thereby maximizing its potential as a riding horse. At the peak of a dressage horse's gymnastic development, the equine will respond smoothly to a skilled rider's minimal aids. The rider will be relaxed and appear effort-free while the equine willingly performs the requested movement. Dressage is occasionally referred to as "Horse Ballet." Although the discipline has ancient roots in Europe, dressage was first recognized as an important equestrian pursuit during the Renaissance. The great European riding masters of that period developed a sequential training system that has changed little since then. Classical dressage is still considered the basis of modern dressage.
In modern dressage competition, successful training at the various levels is demonstrated through the performance of "tests", prescribed series of movements ridden within a standard arena. Judges evaluate each movement on the basis of an objective standard appropriate to the level of the test and assign each movement a score from zero to ten รข€" zero being "not executed" and 10 being "excellent".
